In the palace, teleportation grand matrix area, in front of the grand matrix of space to the Crimson Dragon Realm.
Ye Futian came to see Yan Yuan and the others off. Feixue stood next to Ye Futian. She turned toward him and whispered, What happened to father was nothing that we wanted to see, and I hope you will not blame yourself.
She could feel the guilt in Ye Futians heart. He must have been blaming himself all this time.
Ye Futian looked at the woman in front of him and thought that perhaps the person most in pain was Feixue.
But at the moment, she was still trying to persuade herself.
A smile appeared on his face, but it was mixed with some bitterness. He said, Well, rest assured, I will adjust myself. And you take good care of yourself after you go to the Crimson Dragon Realm with your senior brother.
I will, Feixue nodded gently. Will you still go to Crimson Dragon Realm?
Well, maybe to Qianye City in Crimson Dragon Realm, Ye Futian responded.
Well then, we will see you at the Crimson Dragon Realm, Feixue whispered softly. She then walked toward the grand matrix of space with Yan Yuan and the others as they entered into the matrix.
Everyone, take care, Ye Futian said to Yan Yuan and the others.
You too, Yan Yuan nodded at Ye Futian. The brilliant light shone, and the light beams pierced straight through the sky as if opening up a Great Path of space, and only for a moment, the bodies of these people disappeared directly from the matrix.
Ye Futian looked up at the sky; the channel was still bright with radiance. The energy required for such a realm-crossing matrix was unimaginable. The number of spirit stones of Great Path consumed by the launching of the grand matrix was an astrological figure each time, and only the top principalities could afford its cost.
If one relied upon oneself to go to the Crimson Dragon Realm, even the cultivators from the Nirvana Plane would take a long time, so that was the reason why Yan Yuan came to borrow the passage. Of course, Yan Yuan was also thankful to Emperor Xia. After all, they could leave safely entirely on account of Emperor Xia. No matter what position the two parties were in, a favor was a favor.
Xia Qingyuan stood next to Ye Futian. Her eyes turned and fell on him.
This must have touched Ye Futian considerably.
Are you going to the Crimson Dragon Realm? Xia Qingyuan asked after a moment of silence.
Um, Ye Futian nodded, I meant to use the way of the Crimson Dragon Realm to gain a foothold in Crimson Dragon Realm and then leave. It was pure chance that I thought about Dali and decided to take down Li Yao in Crimson Dragon Realm. But I did not expect that the Imperial Advisor would be there. Everything that happened after, the Princess is well aware of.
Xia Qingyuan was the one person who knew everything that had happened. At the time, right before leaving, Ye Futian had the bright idea of using the Crimson Dragon Realm to get rid of Li Yao and set it all up in the Crimson Dragon Realm. In reality, he had executed the plan and took down Li Yao. However, because the Imperial Advisor of Dali came also, he was pulled into it, thus created the situation today.
But now, Ye Futian must be disappointed. His intention to go away was completely expected.
As I said last time, I will ask my father, the Emperor, to name you as the City Lord of Qianye City. You will be in charge of the city on behalf of Emperor Xias Realm. From then on, you will be in complete charge and not subject to anyone in Emperor Xias Realm, Xia Qingyu said.
She understood that it was inevitable for Ye Futian to leave Emperor Xias Realm. Qianye City was regarded as their victory, and sending Ye Futian to Qianye City as the City Lord meant that he would be considered as a Lord of the land. To name him as the City Lord was not as fitting as saying that the city would be gifted to him, and they had to send cultivators there to assist with security.
After all, Ye Futians strength was not yet enough to stand alone and defend a city.
In the central area of Crimson Dragon Realm, many of the city lords were of the existence in Nirvana Plane; a simple Doctrine Saint was not nearly the same.
Many thanks to the Princess. Ye Futian nodded and did not refuse Xia Qingyuans kindness.
Ill return to the Villa first, Ye Futian said again. Xia Qingyuan nodded. I will see you off.
And the two left together.
Ye Futian did not go to see Emperor Xia and request judgment regarding Xia Rong.
Although Xia Rong hurt him this time, he was the crown prince of Emperor Xias Realm and the biological child of Emperor Xia. From the standpoint of Xia Rong, what was the problem of getting rid of someone powerful, such as the Imperial Advisor of Dali?
Even though the means he used were underhanded, between the battle of two major Renhuangs Realms, it honestly didnt mean much.
Ye Futian had no right to go to Emperor Xia and demand Xia Rong to be punished.
He was the outsider, and to a certain extent, Emperor Xia and Xia Qingyuan had been extremely kind to him.
Just because Emperor Xia and Xia Qingyuan treated him well did not mean that he could demand Emperor Xia to dispose of his own son on his account.
Xia Rong was not Xiao Sheng.
Unless, one day, he had the ability himself to deal with Xia Rong, then there would be nothing else to discuss; he would do it himself. To ask Emperor Xia to handle the matter, what could be his reasoning?
Of course, Ye Futian would not form any opinion on Emperor Xia because of what Xia Rong did.
Emperor Xia was Emperor Xia, and Xia Rong was Xia Rong, just like Xia Qingyuan was Xia Qingyuan.
Everyone was an independent individual, even if they were a family.
This was something that the Swordmaster of Lihen and the Imperial Advisor of Dali had both taught him by action.
Of course, this principle could not apply to those who did evil.
But for all this, he who had already entered the Saint Plane would make his judgment.
After Ye Futian left, Xia Qingyuan came to the place where Emperor Xia was.
When Emperor Xia saw Xia Qingyuan arrive, he asked with a smile, Are you here because of your brother?
Father, does the last incident have anything to do with what happened this time? Xia Qingyuan asked, what she was referring to was when Ye Futians identity was exposed in Dali, and the event that happened at Crimson Dragon Realm.
Last time, Xia Rong was not in the palace, Emperor Xia said, looking at Xia Qingyuan.
Xia Qingyuan looked up at her father. She knew that her brother, Xia Rong, was often in the army, in charge of military affairs.
Of course, absence does not mean that this matter has nothing to do with him. Maybe he did it, maybe your second brother, third brother. They are all possible suspects, Emperor Xia continued.
But why didnt Father ever inquire? Xia Qingyuan asked. She understood that if her father had questioned these events, no matter how secretive they were, they would be able to find something.
Will father not punish my brother this time?
While at the Crimson Dragon Realm, Xia Rong wanted to hurt the Imperial Advisor of Dali. He did that by using Ye Futians life as a bet, and there was a very high possibility that Ye Futian could have been killed.
Dali Dynasty incited the battle with us, and the conflict erupted in the Crimson Dragon Realm. Ye Futian took down Li Yao, but he wanted to release him because of the Imperial Advisor of Dali. What do you think of what he did? asked Emperor Xia.
Xia Qingyuan looked up at her father and was speechless for a moment.
No matter how much respect the Imperial Advisor of Dali deserved, even if he has kind to Ye Futian, he was regarded as Ye Futians master.
But after all had been said and done, he was the Imperial Advisor of the enemy.
For this battle, we mobilized inconsiderable power in Emperor Xias Realm, and several individuals in the Nirvana Plane even went to the Crimson Dragon Realm in person as support. Although it was Ye Futian who took Li Yao down, and there was no issue with him seeing things from his angle, for your elder brother, as the Deputy General of Tian who accomplished all this, how could you accuse him? Emperor Xia continued.
Xia Qingyuan listened quietly; she also wanted to hear what her father had to say.
Whether it is your brother or Ye Futian, everyone is growing. They are all in the Saint Plane. Whatever they want to fight for, I will not stop them, but they must be able to bear the price, even if it is fighting for the throne.
Emperor Xias voice seemed very calm. He said, Many things that you have to do, I will support them, but in what way you want to do accomplish these things solely depends on your ability, and you must consider the consequences. I heard that at the Crimson Dragon Realm, the Imperial Advisor sent Ye Futian a saying: gentleman do not stand close to danger. He was right. Everything you do, you must consider its consequences and consider what kind of situation you will put yourself in.
Today, I will not stop the secret jostling of power between them, nor will I punish your elder brother. In the future, if he has to pay for what he did one day, likewise, I will not stop that either. This is the path of your cultivation, and every cultivator will have to go through all of this in the path of growth, able to bear it all.
Emperor Xia slowly said, You are the same, Qingyuan, and you are about to step into the Saint Plane. Maybe, one day, you will fly on your own.
I understand, Xia Qingyuan nodded slightly, then turned away without saying a word.
Watching Xia Qingyuans departing figure, Emperor Xia said nothing.
This was their cultivation. All the storms, setbacks, and tribulations would work to build an era belonging to them.
A few days later, clashes broke out between Emperor Xias Realm and Emperor Lis Realm in several places with spiritual resources.
Subsequently, these conflicts continued to amplify and detonate. The two Renhuang Realms kept battling on various major battlefields. King Tiandao and Sacred General of Tian led the armies to confront each other.
These things quickly spread to the two realms, and soon, everyone knew that all this was caused by what happened in the Crimson Dragon Realm.
Or rather, it was caused by the grievances between Ye Futian and Li Yao, the crown prince of Dali Dynasty.
Once upon a time, Li Yao killed Ye Futians wife in the land of the Nine States, the Lower World of Emperor Xias Realm. Now, Ye Futian took him down in Crimson Dragon Realm, which led to Li Yaos death.
Of course, these border conflicts had not affected the central area of Emperor Xias Realm. Neither of the two realms had the idea of a full-scale border war. Otherwise, it would not just be limited to this scale.
In Emperor Xias Palace, there was a declaration that Emperor Xia officially named Ye Futian as the City Lord of Qianye City to guard Qianye City in the Crimson Dragon Realm for Emperor Xias Realm!
